NEW YORK (AP) -- U.S. health officials are warning Americans not to travel to the three African countries hit by an outbreak of Ebola.<br />
The travel advisory issued Thursday applies to non-essential travel to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. The outbreak in West Africa has killed more than 700 people since March.<br />
Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say the risk of the deadly disease coming to the United States remains small.<br />
The agency sent about two dozen staffers to West Africa to help try to control the outbreak there. Officials announced Thursday they will send 50 more in the next month.<br />
The last time the CDC issued such a warning during a disease outbreak was in 2003 because of SARS in Asia.
A blustery winter storm dumped snow and ice across the West on Wednesday, making driving treacherous in the mountains from California to the Rockies and forcing residents and party-goers in some usually sun-soaked cities to bundle up for a frosty New Year's.
Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for president, released Wednesday a list of 11 potential Supreme Court justices he plans to vet to fill the seat of late Justice Antonin Scalia if he's elected to the White House.
